On rejection

Last week I received a rejection.

It’s been a good couple of years for rejections.

The WACL Future Leaders Award, the Marketing Academy… now this one too.

It stung.

My first thought was: good. That means you wanted it. Which means you were putting yourself out there, going for something you wanted, taking a risk.

My second thought: you should be getting stung way more often than this. You’re not putting yourself out there enough.
